    Default Is there a court in the country would convict?!

    I’m just back from a week’s holiday. Had a great time!

    I’m just waiting for the Council to finish splitting and clearing a half-allotment and have looooooads of stuff in pots ready to plant. Before I left I watered everything in sight – very well – and asked my son to remember to water it during the week. (You know where this is going, don’t you?)

    He didn’t.

    Fortunately most of it is salvageable. Except for all the salad stuff, which is dead; but I can plant some more of those. The beans are a bit peely-wally (as they say in this neck of the woods), most of the basil revived, surpirsingly. The courgette decided that it had better flower. The flowers I’d planted (chrysants, scaboius, gypsophyla (sp?), nasturtiums and cornflowers) have shot up, and one or two of the cornflowers and gypsophyla have also decided to flower. The rest seems to be OK. I think.

    He’s 6’ 3” so I’ll have to climb on a chair to strangle him - but I'll cope!

    Rant over. Glad to get it off my chest.

    Bad Boy!

    Hope you had a lovely holiday. I have some bits and pieces on the Swap Site if any are of interest to you?

    Well if I was on the jury the verdict would definitely be justifiable homicide!
    Into each life some rain must fall........but this is getting ridiculous.

    I should think you'd be well justified in 'forgetting' to do any of his washing, cooking etc for at least a week...
    Tis very frustrating being forced to rely on someone else for watering duties, but at least you can lavish plenty of care on them now

    I only hope my OH manages better than that while I am in The Netherlands for the next few days!

    Things decide to flower because they think they've had it - one last chance to pass the genes on! I hope you get most of it back to life. Salads grow quickly in this weather so you can always bang a few more in.

    That's just kids basketcase. There seems to be something wrong with their heads. But they do seem to get it on a bit straighter once they pass 30. Once they pass 40 they turn into real people. I'm sure we were just the same.

    From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.
